    A Humble and Aspiring Novelist for Your Watchful Eyes

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by cestefani, Mar 17, 2013.

    Hello! I am Christian Estefani from the Philippines. I'm an aspiring writer, and is planning to write a 4-book novel series. I've been looking for a site where I could post my stories for suggestions and constructive criticism for a long time--I even asked in Yahoo! Answers twice (no results). I'm quite glad I found this site, and I'm hoping I could get what I need in here. Thanks for inviting me into your world, guys! I hope I could help you as much as you would help me.

    What I'm currently writing on is an adventure fantasy fiction (if there's such a category) novel.
    The story spans four books, with the second book having different characters because its setting is set to a time a thousand years ago, and tells the story of an ancestor who will appear in books 3 and 4.
    The stories are set in a different world, with characters not associated with real life people. It contains magic, adventure, and mainly fighting scenes.
    I'm writing book 2 first! It's the one I'm going to post in here once I have been given the permission to.

    My purpose for joining this site is to learn what my story lacks and how it would appeal to readers of different tastes.

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Christian!

    I hope you find what you're looking for here, whatever your interests in writing.

    This forum aims to provide the best workshopping resources on the internet, and to that end we have a few rules which you should familiarise yourself with before you get stuck in. The main section of the site is the Writing Workshop, where members can post their writing in order to receive critique of their work.

    However, before we allow members to post their work, they must have met some basic requirements. Firstly, you must have been a member for fourteen days, and have made twenty posts on the forum overall (please note, posts in Word Games do not count towards this). This is so that members, when they post their work, have familiarised themselves with the forums and contributed to them (as well as hopefully learned something for themselves). Secondly, members must provide two constructive reviews of other people's work for each piece of their own that they wish to post. This is because we believe that the focus of workshopping should be equally upon giving reviews as receiving them, as they allow a writer to practice and improve their editing skills, which they can then apply to their own writing.

    Beyond the Writing Workshop, you will find that we have extensive forums for discussion of aspects of writing, as well as a community area for general discussion. We also run periodic short story and poetry contests, which are good for challenging yourself and expanding your skills. The requirements of the Writing Workshop don't apply to the contests, so new members are allowed (nay, encouraged!) to get stuck in and enter!

    If you have any questions or problems, then the moderators (myself, Lemex and Dante Dases) should be your first port of call. Any technical problems with the site itself should be directed to Daniel, the site administrator and owner. I would recommend you have a look over the rules so that you know what to expect, and what is expected. But aside from that, I hope you enjoy your time here.

    Banzai: Thank you for posting on my thread! Everything I didn't understand (cos I was too lazy to read walls of text earlier, frankly) I finally understood from your post now. I shall contribute to this forums in any way I can!

    Trilby: Thanks for the greeting! It's nice to see that there are some people who take interest in a random stranger's introduction. Heh.
